Not every autograph needs to be signed
Nor every glass filled.
Some songs best are best heard
With the words and music stilled.
In times of restraint we learn to truly seize
That which we’ve always had
For we must learn to unclench our fists
And simply behold what is in our hands.
Its putting down the paintbrush
And taking a step a step back
To pause and consider,
A re-evaluation, a moment to check the map.
A prayer for a fresh perspective
In hope to see old things anew
To rid ourselves of yesterday’s biases
And search for better view.
Every axe will blunt one day
Every pen will run dry
Every system needs a reboot
Every heart, another try.
